Pie Day...Oh, I mean Pi Day!

Back in elementary school my kids always celebrated Pi Day. Their teachers used it as an opportunity to talk about Pi, the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. They always had creative activities to help the kids grasp the concept.

Tomorrow is Pi Day, 3-14!!!!

The Maryland Science Center, located in Baltimore, Maryland is celebrating the day by offering free moon pies and contests. There will be a Pie eating contest, a Hula Hoop contest, Pi-themed music and a Pi memorization contest.

Tomorrow is also Albert Einsteins birthday (Bonanza... two-for-one) and the center will be inviting everyone to learn about his contributions to science and join in a singing of "Happy Birthday."

The Maryland Science Center is located in Baltimore at 601 Light Street. More information about the Pi Day can be found at:  http://www.mdsci.org/events-calendar/events/PiDay.html

And click on this link to find out more about the Maryland Science Center. There is a charge for this event, $14.95 for adults, $13.95 for seniors and $10.95 for ages 3 to 12.

Happy Pi Day!

Home Our Pies History Contact Directions
In the early part of the 1920s, the call of " Fresh Pies"...get your fresh pies here!" was a welcome greeting as the Table Talk wagon filled with fresh pies was pulled by horses throughout small-town neighborhoods. Since 1924, Table Talk Pies has been offering every neighborhood, big or small their pies.

From its humble beginnings in Worcester, Massachusetts, Table Talk Pie has been a leader and innovator in the pie industry while maintaining its small town baker roots. Over the years, Table Talk Pies has grown from a handmade pie baker to a fully automated pie and snack cake bakery. A leader in the 4" baked pie category, Table Talk Pies continues to grow and move into the next century.

Holly-I got curious and googled Table Talk Pies-they ae made in Worcester, Mass.

Holly, I like the idea of having pie on Pi day. Makes sense to me and is not irrational at all like the number.
